Michelle Williams donned a Grecian-style Alexander McQueen gown for today's premiere of My Week With Marilyn in Japan. She packed up and headed to Asia after a stay in LA that included attending the Oscars at the end of last month, and also reportedly spending time at Chateau Marmont with Jason Segel. The role of Marilyn Monroe earned Michelle an Oscar nomination, and netted her new statues from the Independent Spirit Awards, a Golden Globe, and a Hollywood Film Festival Award for best actress. Her movie is coming out on DVD in the US today, but opens in Japan on March 24. Next up for Michelle may be a trip home to the Big Apple, where her movie Take This Waltz will screen next month during the Tribeca Film Festival.
In addition to the following releases, The Adventures of Tintin, Happy Feet Two, and Melancholia are also now available on DVD.
George Clooney stars in this Oscar-winning film as a father who learns his wife has been cheating on him after a boating accident leaves her in a life-threatening coma. Along with his two daughters, he sets out to discover the identity of the man his wife was seeing, while also trying to make a decision to sell his family's Hawaiian property. Clooney turns in yet another masterful performance, while Shailene Woodley has a breakout role as his teenage daughter. The DVD includes deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes extras, and interviews with Clooney and director Alexander Payne.
This dreamy story is told through the lens of Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne), a production assistant who quickly falls for Marilyn Monroe while working with her on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl in London. Michelle Williams plays the insecure yet mesmerizing icon, who's constantly seeking support and validation from the various men in her life. The film is not a biopic, yet Williams's Oscar-nominated performance and incredible physical transformation make it a dazzling glimpse into Monroe's personal life. DVD extras include commentary with director Simon Curtis and the featurette "The Untold Story of an American Icon."

From kid-friendly flicks like The Muppets and Hugo, to more serious fare like My Week With Marilyn, the offerings are aplenty at the box office this Thanksgiving. Take a look at what's in store.
In My Week With Marilyn, Michelle Williams takes on the formidable challenge of playing '50s screen siren Marilyn Monroe. She proves that she's capable and delivers a performance that goes beyond mimicking Monroe; Williams creates a character that you appreciate outside of the real person. The film follows Marilyn while she was in the UK filming the 1957 movie The Prince and the Showgirl opposite Laurence Olivier, but the story is told from someone far less famous than those Hollywood legends. Colin Clark (played by Eddie Redmayne), a young production assistant on the film, wrote the memoir the film is based on, and the story — and impression of Marilyn — are all from his perspective.
The shooting of the film doesn't go smoothly, due to the difficulties caused by Monroe's acting insecurities. She frustrates Olivier, who is not just her leading man, but also director and producer. Marilyn needs constant support, but when her new husband Arthur Miller has to go back to the US to work, she has to find it elsewhere, and takes a shine to Colin. They become friends and confidantes for a week, and they're a magical few days for Colin. Though he experiences ups and downs with the actress, he still falls for the woman easily, in much the same way that I fell for this lovely film. To find out why I was so charmed by My Week With Marilyn, just keep reading.
